Doctors

Thought you might enjoy this article; it's good for a laugh if not for a thought!

(A) The number of doctors in the U.S. is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%

Guns

(A) The number of gun owners in U.S. is 80,000,000 (yes, that's 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.001875%

So statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, guns don't kill people, doctors do.

NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!


Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.





Caroline's suggestions for a good life:
Worship God (seems simple doesn't it?)
Smile a lot (besides making you feel good, it'll cause everyone to wonder what you're up to!)
Eat good food (Or maybe I should say: give up the fast food, chips, and cookies. Yikes!)
Forgive, forgive, forgive. (and try to forget!)
Find something interesting to do. (whether work or relaxation)

That's funny, Bob and Bro. Hellmann were just talking about this in church. Not the doctors but the guns, in the same way you brought it out.
See you in a few days!!
